Davis, California, October 27. THE San Jose State Spartans excelled in their second dual meet of the season against UC Davis on Saturday, beating the Aggies 208 to 92 and making it the fifth time that the Spartans have won when competing against UC Davis.

“We are very happy about the performance we had today,” said head coach Sage Hopkins about the win. “The divers and swimmers stepped up their game and we couldn't be more pleased.”

Out of the 16 events, the Spartans won 14 and set two pool records at the Schaal Aquatics Center. The 200 Yard Medley Relay team of Michaela McLean, Darcie Anderson, Ashlyn Acosta, and Marisa DeWames set a record in the first event with a time of 1:43.62. Later in the day, Marisa DeWames set a record in the 100 free with a time of 50.62, surpassing the previous pool record of 51.37 and improving her best time of the season from 51.60 to 50.62.

“I am very happy with the way Marisa and the rest of the girls swam,” Hopkins said. “I am also happy with the records we set. We were strong from start to finish and it really paid off.”

Along with the swimmers, the diving duo of Jessica Holden and Amy Kilby contributed 26 points to San Jose's win. Holden won the 1-meter and finished second in the 3-meter competition. Kilby took the 3-meter competition and came in second in the 1-meter.
